Agfa Optima 120 Gallery

2

With the incredible amount of detail that medium format offers, you'll need a verstatile film that will resolve all that information and Agfa Optima is up to the job!

Oh Agfa. Why must you leave us so soon? We haven’t gotten enough of your crisp colors, sharp detail and punchy contrast that’s more than perfect for our medium format lenses. With fine grain and natural tones, you were always a pleasant companion during portrait sessions out in the field with the afternoon sun caressing our subject with its warm glow. But all is not lost. Most good things inevitably come to an end, but not in this case. You can still preserve the memory of Agfa Optima with some of the stock we have remaining from Agfa’s factory itself. Cherish it and let your output speak on how good this film is!
